On February 8, 2013, the owner of a 2004 Acura TL contacted the Baltimore City Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the 3800 block of Shannon Drive in Baltimore City, Maryland.
Baltimore City Police verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the Acura.
Minutes later, flight officers from the Baltimore City Police Department Aviation Unit ”Foxtrot” and detectives from the Regional Auto Theft Team picked up the silent Lojack homing signals from the stolen Acura on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their helicopter and vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the flight officers and detectives tracked the vehicle to the 4400 block of Springwood Avenue in Baltimore City, Maryland. Detectives from the Regional Auto Theft Team also responded and set up surveillance on the stolen Acura. After a period of time, two suspects entered the vehicle and attempted to drive away but were stopped and arrested by detectives. The Acura was recovered by police.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Acura TL in November of 2003 at Tischer Acura in Laurel, Maryland.
